HIGH-PERFORMANCE APPS

FREE: Using memoization to speed up slow functions

In this article you’ll learn how memoization can dramatically boost the performance of slow functions, and how easy Swift makes it thanks to its generics and closures.

User-friendly network access

14:26

NETWORKING

FREE: User-friendly network access

Anyone can write Swift code to fetch network data, but much harder is knowing how to write code to do it respectfully. In this article we’ll look at building a considerate network stack, taking into account the user’s connection, preferences, and more.

How to use phantom types in Swift

ADVANCED SWIFT

FREE: How to use phantom types in Swift

Phantom types are a powerful way to give the Swift compiler extra information about our code so that it can stop us from making mistakes. In this article I’m going to explain how they work and why you’d want them, as well as providing lots of hands-on examples you can try.

Functional programming in Swift: Introduction

FUNCTIONAL PROGRAMMING

FREE: Functional programming in Swift: Introduction

Before you dive in to the first article in this course, I want to give you a brief overview of our goals, how the content is structured, as well as a rough idea of what you can expect to find.

Trees

31:55

DATA STRUCTURES

FREE: Trees

Trees are an extraordinarily simple, extraordinarily useful data type, and in this article we’ll make a complete tree data type using Swift in just a few minutes. But rather than just stop there, we’re going to do something quite beautiful that I hope will blow your mind while teaching you something useful.

Shadows and glows

19:50

SWIFTUI SPECIAL EFFECTS

FREE: Shadows and glows

SwiftUI gives us a modifier to make simple shadows, but if you want something more advanced such as inner shadows or glows, you need to do extra work. In this article I’ll show you how to get both those effects and more in a customizable, flexible way.

Making your app accessible

33:12

ULTIMATE PORTFOLIO APP

FREE: Making your app accessible

It is my firm belief that every iOS app should be usable to everyone, and putting in the work to make your app function well no matter who is using it says a lot about the kind of developer you are.

Making the most of optionals

23:07

ADVANCED SWIFT

FREE: Making the most of optionals

Swift’s optionals are implemented as simple enums, with just a little compiler magic sprinkled around as syntactic sugar. However, they do much more than people realize, and in this article I’m going to demonstrate some of their power features that can really help you write better code – and blow your mind along the way.

Creating a custom property wrapper using DynamicProperty

14:20

INTERMEDIATE SWIFTUI

FREE: Creating a custom property wrapper using DynamicProperty

It’s not hard to make a basic property wrapper, but if you want one that automatically updates the body property like @State you need to do some extra work. In this article I’ll show you exactly how it’s done, as we build a property wrapper capable of reading and writing documents from our app’s container.

Creating a WaveView to draw smooth waveforms

32:08

CUSTOM SWIFTUI COMPONENTS

FREE: Creating a WaveView to draw smooth waveforms

In this article I’m going to walk you through building a WaveView with SwiftUI, allowing us to create beautiful waveform-like effects to bring your user interface to life.

Understanding generics – part 1

20:01

INTERMEDIATE SWIFT

FREE: Understanding generics – part 1

Generics are one of the most powerful features of Swift, allowing us to write code once and reuse it in many ways. In this article we’ll explore how they work, why adding constraints actually helps us write more code, and how generics help solve one of the biggest problems in Swift.

Ultimate Portfolio App: Introduction

ULTIMATE PORTFOLIO APP

FREE: Ultimate Portfolio App: Introduction

While I’m sure you’re keen to get started programming immediately, please give me a few minutes to outline the goals of this course and explain why it’s different from other courses I’ve written.

Instant sync and save

16:31

ULTIMATE PORTFOLIO APP

Instant sync and save

Rather than calling update() when our view disappears, what we really want to do is update the object before the disappear happens. In this article I’ll show you the SwiftUI native way of doing this, then walk you through an alternative that I prefer.

Adding haptics

19:31

ULTIMATE PORTFOLIO APP

Adding haptics

In this article I’m going to walk you through adding haptics to your app, to make it feel a little more alive in the user’s hand.

Basic button customization using ButtonStyle

29:23

INTERMEDIATE SWIFTUI

Basic button customization using ButtonStyle

SwiftUI’s humble Button view is actually capable of doing remarkable things if you take the time to customize it. In this video I’ll be walking you through the ButtonStyle protocol, showing you how we can use it to make great-looking and reusable button effects.

Adding a section header

14:02

ULTIMATE PORTFOLIO APP

Adding a section header

Now that item editing works well, we can add a screen to edit projects. But before we can even think about that we need to add a custom section header to let users select a project to edit.

Questions and answers, part 3

ULTIMATE PORTFOLIO APP

Questions and answers, part 3

I’ve had a whole bunch more questions sent in from readers, covering testing, haptics, Spotlight, and more, so let’s dive into them with code examples.

Creating an AccessibleStack that flips stack axis based on Dynamic Type

11:12

CUSTOM SWIFTUI COMPONENTS

Creating an AccessibleStack that flips stack axis based on Dynamic Type

There are several times when you might want to flip between a HStack and VStack, but one useful option is to look at the Dynamic Type size. Apple uses this itself to switch list rows to a vertical layout when using larger fonts, and in this tutorial I’ll show you how it’s done.

Offering in-app purchases, part 2

38:01

ULTIMATE PORTFOLIO APP

Offering in-app purchases, part 2

Previously we added all the back-end work to make in-app purchases possible in our app. In this article we’re going to continue that work by implementing the user interface for our store, limiting the app itself, and also asking for user reviews.

Advanced button customization using ButtonStyle

42:07

INTERMEDIATE SWIFTUI

Advanced button customization using ButtonStyle

Previously we looked at how to create basic button styles that unify your app’s styling efficiently. In this follow-on article we’re going to explore three completely different button styles that show off just what SwiftUI is capable of: glossy marble buttons, classic fantasy buttons, and sci-fi buttons.
